Podemos Fundraising wrote -As PODEMOS enters its 7th year, we are working to expand its ability to provide high quality medical services to those in need in Honduras. Over the next year, we plan to expand our chronic care program. The program currently employs Neri, a wonderful nurse who meets with our diabetic and hypertensive patients monthly to monitor their disease progression and provide them with medications. In order to better serve these patients, we hope to expand the chronic care services to include a broader range of medications and to provide treatment for other chronic health conditions. To do this, we are reaching out to all of our PODEMOS alumni. We all have traveled to Honduras and experienced first-hand the work that PODEMOS does.
100% of the proceeds from this online campaign will go towards funding the expansion of our chronic care program. Due to cost constraints, we are currently limited in our treatment of our diabetic patients. Better glucose control with medications such as insulin have proven to prevent complications such as kidney failure, blindness, and severe infections.
We need your help! We are asking for $10 from every PODEMOS supporter. Your $10 will pay for a month of medications and testing for one of our chronic care patients. This will help us maintain our commitment to the communities we serve. We pride ourselves on continuously improving our continuity of care. Currently our staff in Honduras visits 90 patients monthly. This quality of care is only possible with supporters like you!
